Braves stay hot at home with 2-0 win over Indians

August 28th, 2013 - By Steve James

Rookie Alex Wood pitched five-plus

strong innings, Elliot Johnson had a two-run triple and the Atlanta

Braves beat the Cleveland Indians 2-0 on Tuesday night.

The Braves have won two straight, improving the

majors’ best record to 79-52. They have won 14 of 17 at Turner

Field and own baseball’s home mark at 45-18.

Closer Craig Kimbrel pitched a perfect ninth to earn

his 42nd save, most in the majors, in 45 chances.

He struck out Drew Stubbs and retired pinch-hitter

Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Bourn on groundouts.

Atlanta took a 2-0 lead in the second inning. Brian

McCann walked with one out, advanced to third on Joey

Terdoslavich’s single to right field, and both runners scored when

Johnson tripled over Stubbs near the wall in right.

Wood (3-2) allowed five hits, a career-high four

walks and struck out five in 5 2-3 innings.
